Preparing for Primary 1- A Four Part Series

*The kids and I are on vacation this week so instead of the normal posting schedule I’ll be running a short series which has been requested by our readers who are looking for a better understanding of our
Singapore Schooling System.

Monkey Boy with his gift from his form teacher.

Six months ago I was asked by a reader on how to prepare her son for Primary One. Her son is currently 4 yrs old and would have to register for primary school in two years time. She was interested to know what were the requirements in terms of education level and syllabus which her son had to cover in order to be on par with his peers before he enters primary school.

At that time I hesitated to answer her query. I wanted to give her  a more detailed account with my first hand experience with Monkey Boy as he goes through the first semester as a Primary One student.

In this four part series I will be tackling the following issues

  1. Registration Process for Primary 1
  2. What is expected of your child.
  3. Before  Primary 1
  4. Preparation for the 1st day of School

Stay tuned!!
